The greatest writer of historical adventures today. —Washington PostCritically acclaimed, perennial New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell (Agincourt, The Fort, the Saxon Tales) makes real history come alive in his breathtaking historical fiction. Praised as "the direct heir to Patrick O'Brian" (Agincourt, The Fort), Cornwell has brilliantly captured the fury, chaos, and excitement of battle as few writers have ever done—perhaps most vividly in his phenomenally popular novels following the illustrious military career of British Army officer Richard Sharpe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In Sharpe's Fortress, Ensign Sharpe's adventures in India reach a grand finale at the Siege of Gawilghur during the Maharatta War in December 1803, as Cornwell's hero uncovers a foul treason and seeks a righteous revenge. Perhaps the San Francisco Chronicle said it best: "If only all history lessons could be as vibrant."

4.0 Sharpe's Fortress (Richard Sharpe's Adventure Series #3)
Another enjoyable book from Bernard Cornwell. I like how Sharpe finally gets some vindication in this book, and I can say that without giving anything away. The book was rather short, and at some point I would like a bit more character building with Sharpe and his personal thoughts, but that is a ...

workaday mp3Third in the Indian sequence. I do like the way that Cornwell acknowledges that fictional heroes claim other people's thunder.
